Carolco Pictures, Inc.

Notes to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements

For the Six Months Ended June 30, 2017 and 2016

(Unaudited)

 

Note 1 - Organization and Basis of Operations

 

Carolco Pictures, Inc. (formerly “Brick Top Productions, Inc” or the “Company”) was incorporated under the laws of the State of Florida in February 2009 under the name “York Entertainment, Inc.” The Company changed its name to Brick Top Productions, Inc. in October 2010. In January 2015, the Company changed its name from Brick Top Productions, Inc. to Carolco Pictures, Inc. In addition, in January 2015, the Company changed its stock symbol from “BTOP” to “CRCO.”

 

The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) as promulgated in the United States of America (“U.S.”) and with instructions to Form 10-Q pursuant to the rules and regulations of Securities and Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”) and Article 8-03 of Regulation S-X under the Exchange Act. Accordingly, these condensed consolidated financial statements do not include all of the information and footnotes required by GAAP for complete financial statements. In the opinion of management, we have included all adjustments considered necessary (consisting of normal recurring adjustments) for a fair presentation. Operating results for the six months ended June 30, 2017 are not indicative of the results that may be expected for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2017. You should read these unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements in conjunction with the audited financial statements and the notes thereto included in the Company’s annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2016 filed on April 10, 2017. The condensed consolidated balance sheet as of December 31, 2016 has been derived from the audited financial statements included in the annual report on Form 10-K for that year.

 

Going Concern

 

The Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared assuming that it will continue as a going concern, which contemplates continuity of operations, realization of assets, and liquidation of liabilities in the normal course of business. As reflected in the condensed consolidated financial statements, the Company had a stockholders’ deficit of $1,879,000 at June 30, 2017 and incurred a loss from operations of $496,000. These factors raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern within one year from the date that the financial statements are issued. In addition, the Company’s independent public accounting firm in its audit report to the financial statements included in the 2016 Annual Report expressed substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The condensed consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments related to the recoverability and classification of recorded asset amounts or the amounts and classification of liabilities that might be necessary should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.

 

Management estimates that the current funds on hand and raising capital through proceeds from the sale of common stock subscriptions will be sufficient to continue operations through 2017. The ability of the Company to continue as a going concern is dependent on the Company’s ability to execute its strategy and in its ability to raise additional funds. Management is currently seeking additional funds, primarily through the issuance of equity securities for cash to operate its business. No assurance can be given that any future financing will be available or, if available, that it will be on terms that are satisfactory to the Company. Even if the Company is able to obtain additional financing, it may contain undue restrictions on our operations, in the case of debt financing or cause substantial dilution for our stock holders, in case or equity financing.

Note 2 - Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

 

Reverse Stock Split

 

In January 2017, the Company effected a 1-for-10,000 reverse stock split of the Company’s common stock. All shares and per-share amounts have been retroactively restated as of the earliest periods presented to reflect the stock split.

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosures of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates. Those estimates and assumptions include depreciable lives of property and equipment, analysis of impairments of recorded goodwill, accruals for potential liabilities, assumptions made in valuing derivative liabilities and assumptions made in valuing stock instruments issued for services.

 

Principles of Consolidation

 

The Company’s consolidated subsidiaries and/or entities are as follows:

 

Name of consolidated
 subsidiary or entity
  State or other jurisdiction of  incorporation or organization   Date of incorporation or formation (date of acquisition, if applicable)  

Attributable

interest

             
York Productions, LLC     The State of Florida     October 22, 2008 (June 1, 2010)   60%
             
York Productions II, LLC     The State of Florida     June 13, 2013     60%
             
Recall Studios, Inc.     The State of Nevada     March 30, 2016 (July 27, 2016)     100%

 

The accompanying financial statements are consolidated and include the accounts of the Company and its majority owned subsidiaries. The consolidated accounts include 100% of the assets and liabilities of our majority owned subsidiaries, and the ownership interests of minority investors are recorded as a minority interest. All inter-company balances and transactions have been eliminated. York Productions, LLC and York Productions II, LLC are currently inactive. On June 15, 2017, Carolco Pictures, Inc. entered into a Purchase and Sale Agreement with Metropolitan Sound + Vision LLC, a South Carolina limited liability company. Pursuant to the Agreement, the Company agreed to sell to Metro all of the shares of common stock of S&G Holdings, Inc., a Tennessee corporation doing business as High Five Entertainment owned by the Company, which constitute 75% of the issued and outstanding shares of S&G.

 

Concentrations

 

During the six months ended June 30, 2017, the Company had one customer that accounted for 90% of sales. During the six months ended June 30, 2016, the Company had no sales.

 

Income (Loss) Per Share

 

Basic income (loss) per share is computed by dividing net income (loss) available to common stockholders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period. Diluted income (loss) per share reflects the potential dilution, using the treasury stock method that could occur if securities or other contracts to issue common stock were exercised or converted into common stock or resulted in the issuance of common stock that then shared in the income (loss) of the Company. In computing diluted income (loss) per share, the treasury stock method assumes that outstanding options and warrants are exercised and the proceeds are used to purchase common stock at the average market price during the period. Options and warrants may have a dilutive effect under the treasury stock method only when the average market price of the common stock during the period exceeds the exercise price of the options and warrants.

For the six months ended June 30, 2017, the dilutive impact of a note payable that can convert into 13 shares of common stock and warrants exercisable into 239 shares of common stock have been excluded because their impact on the income per share is anti-dilutive. For the six months ended June 30 2017, the calculation of diluted earnings per share included convertible Series B Preferred stock that can convert into 2,000,000 shares of common stock, convertible Series C Preferred stock that can convert into 2,848,982 shares of common stock, and notes that can convert into 1,058,537 shares of common stock. For the six months ended June 30, 2016, the dilutive impact of 295 warrants, Series B Preferred stock that can convert into 2,000,000 shares of common stock and notes that can convert into 399,333,333 shares of common stock have been excluded because their impact on the loss per share is anti-dilutive.

Derivative Financial Instruments

 

The Company evaluates its financial instruments to determine if such instruments are derivatives or contain features that qualify as embedded derivatives. For derivative financial instruments that are accounted for as liabilities, the derivative instrument is initially recorded at its fair value and is then re-valued at each reporting date, with changes in the fair value reported in the statements of operations. For stock-based derivative financial instruments, the Company uses a probability weighted average Black-Scholes-Merton models to value the derivative instruments at inception and on subsequent valuation dates through the June 30, 2017, reporting date.

 

The classification of derivative instruments, including whether such instruments should be recorded as liabilities or as equity, is evaluated at the end of each reporting period.

 

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements

 

In May 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued Accounting Standards Update (ASU) No. 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers. ASU 2014-09 is a comprehensive revenue recognition standard that will supersede nearly all existing revenue recognition guidance under current U.S. GAAP and replace it with a principle based approach for determining revenue recognition. ASU 2014-09 will require that companies recognize revenue based on the value of transferred goods or services as they occur in the contract. The ASU also will require additional disclosure about the nature, amount, timing and uncertainty of revenue and cash flows arising from customer contracts, including significant judgments and changes in judgments and assets recognized from costs incurred to obtain or fulfill a contract. ASU 2014-09 is effective for interim and annual periods beginning after December 15, 2017. Early adoption is permitted only in annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2016, including interim periods therein. Entities will be able to transition to the standard either retrospectively or as a cumulative-effect adjustment as of the date of adoption. The Company is in the process of evaluating the impact of ASU 2014-09 on the Company’s financial statements and disclosures.

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-02, Leases. ASU 2016-02 requires a lessee to record a right of use asset and a corresponding lease liability on the balance sheet for all leases with terms longer than 12 months. ASU 2016-02 is effective for all interim and annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2018. Early adoption is permitted. A modified retrospective transition approach is required for lessees for capital and operating leases existing at, or entered into after, the beginning of the earliest comparative period presented in the financial statements, with certain practical expedients available. The Company is in the process of evaluating the impact of ASU 2016-02 on the Company’s financial statements and disclosures.

 

July 2017, the FASB issued ASU 2017-11, Earnings Per Share (Topic 260); Distinguishing Liabilities from Equity (Topic 480); Derivatives and Hedging (Topic 815): (Part I) Accounting for Certain Financial Instruments with Down Round Features, (Part II) Replacement of the Indefinite Deferral for Mandatorily Redeemable Financial Instruments of Certain Nonpublic Entities and Certain Mandatorily Redeemable Noncontrolling Interests with a Scope Exception. ASU 2017-11 allows companies to exclude a down round feature when determining whether a financial instrument (or embedded conversion feature) is considered indexed to the entity’s own stock. As a result, financial instruments (or embedded conversion features) with down round features may no longer be required to be accounted for as derivative liabilities. A company will recognize the value of a down round feature only when it is triggered and the strike price has been adjusted downward. For equity-classified freestanding financial instruments, an entity will treat the value of the effect of the down round as a dividend and a reduction of income available to common shareholders in computing basic earnings per share. For convertible instruments with embedded conversion features containing down round provisions, entities will recognize the value of the down round as a beneficial conversion discount to be amortized to earnings. The guidance in ASU 2017-11 is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, and interim periods within those fiscal years. Early adoption is permitted, and the guidance is to be applied using a full or modified retrospective approach. The Company plans to adopt ASU 2017-11 in the third quarter of 2017. The adoption of ASU 2017-11 is not expected to have a material impact on the Company’s financial statements and related disclosures.

 

Other recent accounting pronouncements issued by the FASB, including its Emerging Issues Task Force, the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, and the Securities and Exchange Commission did not or are not believed by management to have a material impact on the Company’s present or future consolidated financial statement presentation or disclosures.

 

Note 3 – Convertible Notes Payable to Related Parties

 

Chairman and CEO

 

In July 2015, the Company issued convertible promissory notes to Alex Bafer, Chairman and CEO, in exchange for the cancellation of previously issued promissory notes in the aggregate of $530,000 and accrued interest of $13,000 for a total of $543,000. The notes are unsecured, bear interest of 5% per annum, matured on October 1, 2015 and are convertible to shares of common stock at a conversion price equal to the lowest closing stock price during the 20 trading days prior to conversion with a 50% discount.

 

In October 2015, the notes matured and became past due. As a result, the stated interest of 5% increased to 22% pursuant to the term of the notes. In July 2016, the Company and Mr. Bafer agreed to extend the maturity date of these notes to August 1, 2017 and cure the default. There were no other terms changed and no additional compensation paid. As of June 30, 2017 and December 31, 2016, the total outstanding note balance amounted to $434,000 and $434,000, and accrued interest of $130,000 and $118,000, respectively. The notes are currently past due.

 

Shareholder

 

On December 28, 2016, the Company issued an unsecured convertible promissory note in the principal amount of $50,000 to a shareholder. The note bears interest at 5% per annum, is due on March 24, 2017, and is convertible into shares of common stock at a conversion price of $4,000 per share. The note is currently past due.

Note 4- Derivative Liability

 

The FASB has issued authoritative guidance whereby instruments which do not have fixed settlement provisions are deemed to be derivative instruments. Certain warrants issued to investors and conversion features of notes payable did not have fixed settlement provisions because either their exercise prices will be lowered if the Company issues securities at lower prices in the future or the conversion price is variable. In addition, since the number of shares to be issued is not explicitly limited, the Company is unable to conclude that enough authorized and unissued shares are available to share settle the conversion option. In accordance with the FASB authoritative guidance, the conversion feature of the notes was separated from the host contract (i.e., the notes) and the fair value of the warrants have been recognized as a derivative and will be re-measured at the end of every reporting period with the change in value reported in the statement of operations.

 

The derivative liabilities were valued at the following dates using a probability based weighted-average Black-Scholes-Merton model with the following average assumptions:

 

    June 30, 2017     December 31, 2016  
Stock Price   $ 0.92     $ 4.0  
Risk free interest rate     0.84 %     0.51% - 0.62 %
Expected Volatility     919 %     383 %
Expected life in years     0.08       0.21-0.57  
Expected dividend yield     0 %     0 %
                 
Fair Value – Warrants   $ 0     $ 11,930,000  
Fair Value – Note Conversion Feature     812,000       1,055,000  
Total   $ 812,000     $ 12,985,000  

 

The risk-free interest rate was based on rates established by the Federal Reserve Bank. The Company uses the historical volatility of its common stock to estimate the future volatility for its common stock. The expected life of the derivative securities was determined by the remaining contractual life of the derivative instrument. For derivative instruments that already matured, the Company used the estimated life. The expected dividend yield was based on the fact that the Company has not paid dividends to its common stockholders in the past and does not expect to pay dividends to its common stockholders in the future.

 

During the period ended June 30, 2017, the Company recorded a gain of $12,173,000 to account for the change in fair value of the derivative liabilities related to the conversion features and warrants from December 31, 2016 to June 30, 2017. The warrants accounted for as derivative liabilities expired and as such their corresponding fair value at the expiration date of $0 was extinguished from the derivative liabilities balance. As of June 30, 2017, the derivative liability amounted to $812,000.

The Company may be involved in certain legal proceedings that arise from time to time in the ordinary course of its business. Except for income tax contingencies (commencing April 1, 2009), the Company records accruals for contingencies to the extent that management concludes that the occurrence is probable and that the related amounts of loss can be reasonably estimated. Legal expenses associated with the contingency are expensed as incurred.

Note 8 – Discontinued Operations

 

On June 15, 2017, the Company entered into a Purchase and Sale Agreement with Metropolitan Sound + Vision LLC, a South Carolina limited liability company. Pursuant to the Agreement, the Company agreed to sell to Metro all of the shares of common stock of S&G Holdings, Inc., a Tennessee corporation doing business as High Five Entertainment owned by the Company, which constitute 75% of the issued and outstanding shares of S&G. Pursuant to current accounting guidelines, the business component is reported as a discontinued operations.

 

Pursuant to the Agreement, at the closing of the Transaction, the Company was to deliver to Metro 100% of the issued and outstanding shares of common stock of S&G owned by the Company, and Metro was required to pay for such stock as follows: An initial payment of $10,000 was required to be made at the closing, and thereafter, at the end of each fiscal quarter, beginning at the end the third fiscal quarter of 2017, Metro shall pay the Company 5% of gross revenues collected during the quarter by Metro via the exploitation of S&G’s assets, up to a lifetime maximum of $590,000.

 

The Agreement requires Metro to use its best professional efforts to generate revenue from the exploitation of S&G’s assets, and if the Company has not received a total of at least $265,000 of the $590,000 lifetime maximum purchase price from Metro before July 1, 2022, the Company has the right to repurchase the stock and assets of the S&G from Metro for $10,000.

 

The Company recognized a gain on the sale of S&G of $57,000 consisting of the assumption by the buyer of the net liabilities of S&G of $236,000 offsets by the elimination of the non-controlling interest of S&G of $189,000 and the purchase price consideration of $10,000. The remainder of the purchase price will be recognized when collectability can be determined.

Trademark Assignment and Settlement Agreement

 

On July 19, 2017, Carolco Pictures, Inc. entered into a Trademark Assignment and Settlement Agreement with STUDIOCANAL, a Société anonyme of France.

 

A dispute had previously arisen between STUDIOCANAL and the Company in relation to the trademark for “CAROLCO” obtained by Brick Top Productions, Inc., an affiliate of the Company. Pursuant to the Agreement, and in order to settle the dispute, the Company agreed to assign the “CAROLCO” trademark to STUDIOCANAL.

 

In connection therewith, on the same date as the execution of the Agreement, the Company and STUDIOCANAL executed a Trademark Assignment Recordal Form. In consideration of the assignment, STUDIOCANAL agreed to pay the Company a one-time fee of $9,000 within 15 days of the execution of the Agreement.

 

16 
 

 

Pursuant to the Agreement, the Company was required, within three business days following the receipt of the payment, to surrender the domain name http://www.carolcopictures.com/ to STUDIOCANAL with any future payments related to the domain name to be assumed by STUDIOCANAL. The payment is expected to be received in the time frame referenced above, at which point the domain name will be transferred to STUDIOCANAL.

 

As of the effective date of the Agreement, the Company agreed that it and its affiliates will cease producing and distributing television shows, movies or any other media under the CAROLCO mark or any mark confusingly similar to the CAROLCO mark. In addition, the Company agreed that, within 10 days of the date of the Agreement, the Company will initiate the process of changing its name. Upon completion of the required securities and corporate law actions in connection with the name change, but in no event more than 75 days after the date of the Agreement, unless such delay is caused by a regulatory agency and not the Company, the Company agreed to change its name to remove reference to CAROLCO, and will remove all mention of the CAROLCO name from its products, website, and all future corporate documents.

 

The Company also agreed to remove all images and titles of Carolco Pictures’ library films from its and its affiliates’ websites as of the effective date of the Agreement, that neither it nor any of its affiliates will ever use any images from or titles of works in the Carolco Pictures library in the future, that neither it nor any of its affiliates will use or apply for registration of any marks containing the term CAROLCO or variations thereof in connection with any entertainment-related products or services, and that the Company would not oppose or otherwise challenge STUDIOCANAL’s use of, trademark applications, or registrations for the CAROLCO mark, or any mark containing a variation of the term CAROLCO.

 

Under the Agreement, each party released the other party, its affiliates, subsidiaries, holding companies and other entities within its control, successors and assigns, and all officers, directors, employees, agents, representatives, third party vendors, insurers and attorneys, from any and all claims, causes of action or demands of any kind or nature whatsoever which arise from use of the CAROLCO marks in connection with entertainment-related products or services and which existed prior to the effective date of the Agreement

 

Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations

 

Unless otherwise indicated, references in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q to “we,” “us,” and “our” are to the Company, unless the context requires otherwise. The following discussion and analysis by our management of our financial condition and results of operations should be read in conjunction with our unaudited condensed interim financial statements and the accompanying related notes included in this quarterly report and our audited financial statements and related notes and Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2016 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

 

Overview

 

We were incorporated on February 20, 2009, in the State of Florida, under the name York Entertainment, Inc. On October 5, 2010, we amended our articles of incorporation to change our name to Brick Top Productions, Inc. Effective December 31, 2014, we amended our articles of incorporation to change our name to Carolco Pictures, Inc.

 

Through our subsidiary, Recall Studios that we acquired in July 2016, we focus on Virtual Reality content, filling the demand attendant to the increased production of virtual reality viewing devices absent a corresponding increase in content production. Founded by business, media and entertainment industry leaders to meet growing demand for virtual reality and augmented reality content, Recall Studios operates within the convergence of immersive content and software. Recall Studios will allow consumers to create and share interactive experiences across all platforms. Combining modern business strategy with industry experience by bringing together highly trained relative newcomers and entertainment industry stalwarts to create low risk, high profit and artistically acclaimed feature film virtual reality and television projects, the Company and its subsidiaries are analyzing profitability across myriad entertainment sectors.

Management’s Plan

 

The business side of our management team is disciplined in financial risk mitigation techniques. Aside from the commercialization of our management team’s past successes, which cannot in themselves necessarily predict future success, we are experienced at balancing projects, budgets and growth to effectively manage risk in light of our business objectives.

 

We believe that we have unique access to Hollywood talent, scripts and third parties ripe for acquisition. We believe that the reputation of our management team in producing some of the most-well known, talked about and socially ingrained entertainment opens doors for us that are closed to others.

 

We believe that our management team’s reputation, contacts and experience give us a competitive edge. However, the market for productions currently is, and is expected to continue to be, extremely competitive. Our competitors include many companies that have substantially greater financial, management, marketing resources and experience than us. There can be no assurance that our productions will be competitive with other motion pictures or television shows, or that we will be able to achieve or maintain profitability.

 

Recent Developments

 

On April 3, 2017, the Company entered into a separation agreement and general release by and between the Company and David Cohen pursuant to which Mr. Cohen agreed to resign from his officer and director positions with the Company. In consideration thereof, Mr. Cohen received 1,000 shares of Company common stock. Mr. Cohen resigned on April 11, 2017.

 

On June 15, 2017, Carolco Pictures, Inc. entered into a Purchase and Sale Agreement with Metropolitan Sound + Vision LLC, a South Carolina limited liability company. Pursuant to the Agreement, the Company agreed to sell to Metro all of the shares of common stock of S&G Holdings, Inc., a Tennessee corporation doing business as High Five Entertainment owned by the Company, which constitute 75% of the issued and outstanding shares of S&G, for a total purchase price of $600,000. The Company had acquired the shares of S&G from Martin Fischer in 2013, and Mr. Fisher subsequently served as the President of S&G, and is a stockholder of the Company.

 

S&G’s minority shareholders have agreed to the sale and the delivery of their shares to Metro.

 

Pursuant to the Agreement, at the closing of the Transaction, the Company was to deliver to Metro 100% of the issued and outstanding shares of common stock of S&G owned by the Company, and Metro was required to pay for such stock as follows: An initial payment of $10,000 was required to be made at the closing, and thereafter, at the end of each fiscal quarter, beginning at the end the third fiscal quarter of 2017, Metro shall pay the Company 5% of gross revenues collected during the quarter by Metro via the exploitation of S&G’s assets, up to a lifetime maximum of $590,000.

 

Metro is also required to provide documentation and accounting of all exploitation of such assets to the Company along with its quarterly payments. Metro is not required to make any payments in any quarter in which no revenues are collected from the exploitation of S&G’s assets.

 

Pursuant to the Agreement, the Company agreed that the Company would (i) repay or settle the sum of $33,334 which was due from S&G to S&G’s former landlord, Colliers International by July 31, 2017; and (ii) repay or settle the sum of $6,591 which was due from S&G to the State of Tennessee by July 1, 2017. In addition, the Company also forgave $5,000 which remained owed by S&G to the Company pursuant to a promissory note, originally in the amount of $25,000, of which S&G had previously repaid $20,000. The Agreement provided that S&G would retain the obligation for a $75,000 line of credit with SunTrust Bank. In addition, the sum of $39,656, which was due and payable to Martin Fischer by S&G has been fully and irrevocably settled and resolved by the Settlement and Mutual Release described below. In addition, Metro was entitled to deduct from the purchase price all taxes that the Company or S&G owe to any federal or state entity as they relate to the assets of S&G.

 

The Agreement requires Metro to use its best professional efforts to generate revenue from the exploitation of S&G’s assets, and if the Company has not received a total of at least $265,000 of the $590,000 lifetime maximum purchase price from Metro before July 1, 2022, the Company has the right to repurchase the stock and assets of the S&G from Metro for $10,000.

As of June 30, 2017, our total assets were $40,000 and our total liabilities were $1,919,000 and we had negative working capital of ($1,882,000). Our financial statements report net income of $11,665,000 including non-cash gain of $12,173,000 for the change in fair value of derivative liability for the six months ended June 30, 2017 as compared to a net loss of $4,381,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2016.

 

We have suffered recurring losses from operations. The continuation of our company is dependent upon our company attaining and maintaining profitable operations and raising additional capital as needed. In this regard, we have raised additional capital through equity offerings and loan transactions, and, in the short term, will seek to raise additional capital in such manners to fund our operations. We do not currently have any third-party financing available in the form of loans, advances, or commitments. Our officers and shareholders have not made any written or oral agreement to provide us additional financing. There can be no assurance that we will be able to continue to raise capital on terms and conditions that are deemed acceptable to us.

 

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

As of June 30 2017, we did not have any off-balance sheet arrangements that have or are reasonably likely to have a material current or future effect on our financial condition, changes in financial condition, revenues or expenses, results of operations liquidity, capital expenditures or capital resources.

Going Concern

 

The Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared assuming that it will continue as a going concern, which contemplates continuity of operations, realization of assets, and liquidation of liabilities in the normal course of business. As reflected in the condensed consolidated financial statements, the Company had a stockholders’ deficit of $1,879,000 at June 30, 2017 and incurred a loss from operations of $496,000. These factors raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern within one year from the date that the financial statements are issued. In addition, the Company’s independent public accounting firm in its audit report to the financial statements included in the 2016 Annual Report expressed substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The condensed consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments related to the recoverability and classification of recorded asset amounts or the amounts and classification of liabilities that might be necessary should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.

 

Management estimates that the current funds on hand and raising capital through proceeds from the sale of common stock subscriptions will be sufficient to continue operations through 2017. The ability of the Company to continue as a going concern is dependent on the Company’s ability to execute its strategy and in its ability to raise additional funds. Management is currently seeking additional funds, primarily through the issuance of equity securities for cash to operate its business. No assurance can be given that any future financing will be available or, if available, that it will be on terms that are satisfactory to the Company. Even if the Company is able to obtain additional financing, it may contain undue restrictions on our operations, in the case of debt financing or cause substantial dilution for our stock holders, in case or equity financing.

 

Critical Accounting Policies

 

We have identified the following policies below as critical to our business and results of operations. Our reported results are impacted by the application of the following accounting policies, certain of which require management to make subjective or complex judgments. These judgments involve making estimates about the effect of matters that are inherently uncertain and may significantly impact quarterly or annual results of operations. For all of these policies, management cautions that future events rarely develop exactly as expected, and the best estimates routinely require adjustment. Specific risks associated with these critical accounting policies are described in the following paragraphs.

 

Derivative Financial Instruments The Company evaluates its financial instruments to determine if such instruments are derivatives or contain features that qualify as embedded derivatives. For derivative financial instruments that are accounted for as liabilities, the derivative instrument is initially recorded at its fair value and is then re-valued at each reporting date, with changes in the fair value reported in the statements of operations. For stock-based derivative financial instruments, the Company uses a probability weighted average Black-Scholes-Merton models to value the derivative instruments at inception and on subsequent valuation dates through the June 30, 2017, reporting date. The classification of derivative instruments, including whether such instruments should be recorded as liabilities or as equity, is evaluated at the end of each reporting period.

 

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements

 

See Note 2 in the accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements for a discussion of recent accounting policies.

 

Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act of 2012

 

The JOBS Act permits an “emerging growth company” such as us to take advantage of an extended transition period to comply with new or revised accounting standards applicable to public companies. Pursuant to Section 107(b) of the JOBS Act, we have elected to use the extended transition period for complying with new or revised accounting standards for an “emerging growth company.” This election will permit us to delay the adoption of new or revised accounting standards that will have different effective dates for public and private companies until such time as those standards apply to private companies. Consequently, our financial statements may not be comparable to companies that comply with public company effective dates.

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures about Market Risk

 

Not required for smaller reporting companies.

 

Item 4. Controls and Procedures

 

Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

We maintain disclosure controls and procedures, which are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in the reports we file or submit under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the Securities and Exchange Commission’s rules and forms, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our CEO and Chief Accounting Officer, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

 

Under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our CEO and Principal Financial and Accounting Officer, an evaluation was performed on the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures as of the end of the period covered by this quarterly report. Based on that evaluation, our management, including our CEO and Principal Financial and Accounting Officer, concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were ineffective as of the end of the period covered by this report due to the Company’s limited resources and limited number of employees. To mitigate the current limited resources and limited employees, we rely heavily on direct management oversight of transactions, along with the use of legal and outsourced accounting professionals. As we grow, we expect to increase our number of employees, which, we believe, will enable us to implement adequate segregation of duties within the internal control framework.

 

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

There were no changes in the Company’s internal control over financial reporting identified in connection with the evaluation required by paragraph (d) of Rule 13a-15 or 15d-15 of the Exchange Act that occurred during the fiscal quarter ended June 30 2017 that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, the Company’s internal control over financial reporting.

Legal expenses associated with the contingency are expensed as incurred.
